              Decent vision place but needs to have an outside sign that isn't just in their back parking lot. Drove up and down the road for 30 minutes with Google maps telling me I arrived Everytime I passed taco bell but it wasn't specific about telling me that I would have to turn down a back road and go to the back of the building just to see the sign that said prairie vision. I almost just went to another glasses place with how long I had to search for it. The side of the building that faces the road just has "building closed" signs and doesn't give off any clues that there's a vision place inside. It's almost as if they were trying to hide the place, you really have to hunt for it to find the right building.

              We were in town for the Rumble on the Red wrestling tourney. Our son lost his contact during his match and needed a replacement. I contacted Prairie Vision to see if they had his brand and power of lens, since I tried to contact other places with no luck. Our normal eye doctor emailed the prescription and we were able to drive and pick up the contact with saline solution and get my son back to seeing properly again. The representative provided the contact, saline and case at a very affordable price (lower than our normal Dr). If we were not located 200 miles away, we would consider contacting you for our future needs as well, because of the great customer service and thoughtfulness we received that day. Thank you again
